ConsultingMy consulting work is closely tied to the academic research and teaching I have done for more than twenty years on the topics of strategy, operations, and innovation. I consult only on those topics for which I have done in-depth research and can bring to bear unique expertise. My clients range from small start-ups to multinational corporations, and span a broad array of sectors, including: pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, medical devices, specialty chemicals, software, scientific instruments, electronics, aerospace, consumer goods, and financial services.I typically work with companies on both the design and effective implementation of solutions.


Specific topic areas of my consulting include:

  • Product development and the management of R&D portfolios
  • Collaborative innovation strategies
  • Market entry and intellectual property licensing strategies for innovators
  • Operations and supply chain strategy, including plant network design
  • Outsourcing and vertical integration decisions
  • Competitive strategy and business model design

  • In addition to consulting, I also develop and teach customized executive workshops on these topics.
